Once plowing begins, our combined plow force will be approximately 170 pieces of equipment, and it will take 10 to 12 hours from the start of the plowing for all city streets to be cleared.Temperatures have remained above 15 degrees throughout the storm, meaning the Streets Division was able to apply salt to our salt routes and keep these major thoroughfares of Madison in decent winter driving condition. Those on the roads must remain cautious. Since there is active snowing, work performed by salt routes crews will be covered until another loop through the routes can be completed.Plus, this dry, sugary snow will easily blow off buildings and across open areas, which will also cover the roads until a salt route operator can make another pass.

We need Secretary Carter to act.”Fulton, who did not attend year’s Pentagon pride event, said: “As a leader of an organization that includes hundreds of active duty transgender service members, I don’t feel comfortable celebrating military LGBT accomplishments while they continue to serve in silence.”Aaron Belkin of the Palm Center, which conducts research on sexual minorities in the military, attended the gathering and said he didn’t understand the delay in the working group’s findings.”It was just so awkward, even shocking here we are at the pride celebration in honor of LGBT service members and we are now 11 months past Secretary Carter’s pledge to review the ban in six months,” he told CNN.A Pentagon spokesperson said the working group is continuing “to evaluate this complicated issue.””The working group continues to meet and deliberate with experts from the Military Services,” the spokesperson said.”They have been tasked with examining input and data from multiple sources inside and outside the Department to evaluate this complicated issue while keeping the impacts to health care, individual and Service readiness, and cost implications in mind. All of this must be taken into account before a final decision can be made.”Military policy toward LGBT communities has changed significantly in recent years. The “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” law that prohibited gay and lesbian members from serving openly, was repealed in 2010.
